We are officially 7 days away from the Philadelphia Flyers opening night that takes place on October 13th 2022, the Flyers face the New Jersey Devils that night and it will give fans a chance to see what the so-called ''new and improved'' Flyers team will look like. Fans will get the chance to have their first look at newly acquired Flyers Tony DeAngelo, Nic Deslauriers and more.

Let's take a look at his best moments in a Flyers jersey, and also a career summary brought to you by Bleacher Report Philadelphia.
The one and only, Bill Barber.
Hall of Famer, all-time franchise leader in goals, Bobby Clarke's left winger, major part of two Stanley Cups, one-time team captain, and brutal fore-checker Bill Barber is the franchise's greatest winger.
Must read on FlyersInsider
He scored fifty goals in 1975-76 season and recorded at least 20 goals in each of his 12 years as a Flyer.
He played in the NHL's mid-season All-Star Game six times; he was once named an NHL First-Team All-Star and twice an NHL Second-Team All-Star.

He retired in 1985, having missed the entire 1984-85 season due to injury.
Unlike previous Flyers who had their numbers retired (Ashbee, Parent and Clarke) the Flyers waited until a year after Barber was inducted into the Hall of Fame to retire his number. In the years between Barber's retirement and the team's retiring of his jersey number, Jay Wells, Craig Fisher and "The Great" Brian Dobbin all wore No. 7 for the Flyers.
